Revised Antelope License Rules
The Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Commission revised a rule last week to allow antelope hunters who were awarded a doe/fawn permit through the recent special license drawing to apply for a surplus doe/fawn license.
"The rule was revised to allow any antelope hunter the opportunity to apply for one of these surplus doe/fawn licenses," said Don Childress, FWP's Wildlife Division administrator.
Applications for surplus big game hunting licenses and permits are now available at FWP regional offices and license providers statewide. This year, about 300 elk permits, 3,520 antelope licenses, and 8,050 deer B licenses were not sold during Montana's recent special drawing.
Hunters who were successful in drawing deer B or elk permits cannot apply again for that species.
Applications for those surplus licenses and permits will be filled on a first come, first served basis beginning Sept. 3. The application must be filled out and mailed in to FWP, Special Licensing, 1420 East Sixth Ave., P.O. Box 200701, Helena, MT 59620-0701.
